Spyware and other nasties.

  Newuser2110 12:29 05 May 2005

Hello: I have just bought a laptop with XP.Other pc has Win 98 and i have never been bothered with spyware or other nasties but after only 3 hours with XP, Panda stopped and isolated 3 spyware cookies.This prompted me to look in my cookies folder and i found Yadro/mediaplex/hitbox/doubleclick/burstnet/atdmt & 207.Where have they come from? & what do i need to clear them off (I deleted the cookies but will they return) and stop them getting on in the first place.A friend said spyware blaster should help stop them getting on but it wont remove them.
Any advice anyone can give will be gratefully received. Leads me to ask: Is XP more of a problem than 98?

click here, download and run. Delete all it finds. MS Antispy for the XP comp. click here download run and it will protect you in real time. Ensure your AV is up to date. The spyware cookies are harmless and are perfectly normal.
